Since I don't have the Macon boot, I listened to it on YouTube and I actually liked the performance. Not only is it a good line-up Elvis actually sounds really fresh and far from bored. I didn't like the Atlanta set. He sounded a bit overcome by the daily routine. That said however it's the unbalanced piano led mix that's a real let down and I doubt the Lakeland show would be much different. Anyway I'll wait until the reviews come out.
Looking forward to your answer Cisco !

I agree with Dazman. Soundboards from uncovered tours (by FTD) need to be released.
I'm a collector, yet I have absolutely no interest in getting this Georgia/Florida set.

I listened to the already released show yesterday, or at least i tried. I stopped listening, because it was really depressing for well known reasons. Shouldn't be released officially imo.

Not the least bit interested. Next!

Ooops ! We had Closing Night, but those shows were badly junked, so there must be more respectable performances by Elvis from this period.

Ciscoking: you seem to be hammering out these soundboards from 1974/75 very intensely. At the risk of being shot down in flames, may I suggest looking at some 1977 SB's. Why haven't we had one since 2011 ? I know there's some reading this hoping that it will stay that way, but that would only be going against FTD's release policy. Surely there's plenty of them that are much better than we already have. From the February tour we have Savannah GA (17th), Columbia SC (18th) or Johnson City TN (19th). From the April/May tour there's the Greensboro NC (21st), Milwaukee (27th) and the 2 Chicago IL shows from May 1st & 2nd, going by their respective audience recordings. We also haven't a concert from March 1976.
Also, according to JAT's Sessions 3 book, there are 8 SB's from August/September 1973 in Vegas. That engagement has also been overlooked. Is there any decent material worthy of release ? Even outstanding quality booth recordings like the Aug. 20 M/S.

Not impressed or interested at all.

The show of the first CD is also included in the import box-release "Elvis Rocks in 1975", isn't it?

The show of 24.04.75 Macon, Georgia is already known. A soundboard is already on the collectors market. The Afternoon Show on 27.04.75 Lakeland, Florida is completely new. A brand new show never heard before. The evening show of that day has already been published by FTD in 2014. Now also the Afternoon Show. The song selection is good. Some rarities are already there. Let's hope that this time finally the sound quality, no clicks and the correct speed, fits. This set should not convince all Elvis fans. But for the complete concert collector probably a must. The cover shows a good-humored Elvis. I like this photo, but not the CD cover artwork. Would have gone better. But, Ok.
